Re: Jagdfliegerverbände Vol. 9 / III

Hi Jochen

thanks for the great news. Maybe a dumb question, but are there nay listings of JV 44 losses ( exept Galland ). Or maybe some evidence of Jv 44 Platzschutz losses?

JV-44 was not formed until 1945 . The series is currently dealing with 1942 and volume 10 will begin coverage of 1943. I am afraid you will have to wait with the rest of us for Herr Prien to get to 1945. And we all hope that he persists until he does reach those times. In the meantime you may wish to consult the Jv44 book written by Robert Forsyth

Got my copy from Struve today.

It's big, its heavy and on first glance it certainly does deliver.

This single volume is packed with JG 5, JG 54 & JG 77 photographs, it will be a joy for any paintscheme enthusiast! It will be difficult to find any single reference with such a concentration of the famous Eastern Front "greens".

Included are two high quality Planquadrat maps (size A2), showing all principle Jagfwaffe airfields and unit movements on the Eastern Front.
Liegeplätze der Jagdverbände an der Ostfront zwischen 5-12-1941 und 27-6-1942
&
Liegeplätze der Jagdverbände an der Ostfront zwischen 27-6-1942 und 3-2-1943
These are similar to the maps provided in 6/II and 8/I.

More to follow once I dig in, that's a promise!

Re: Jagdfliegerverbände Vol. 9 / III

Dear George,

thank you for the flowers, but I still know about the limitations of our efforts. So much more could be done if we only had more time to pick up all the leads that still await to be discovered. It is an ongoing operation and a second edition would already see quite a lot of additions and also some more corrections. However, there may be hope - it looks as though a potent publisher is contemplating the possibility of an up-dated and augmented English version in the foreseeable future. Still, as of now nothing has been signed and sealed.

Talking about correctons - here is one I feel that must be made public right away as I feel it concerns a silly mistake I made in Vol 9 / III: The photo on top of page 318 - # 335 - does not show the tally on Anton Hackl's "black 5", but the victory tally of Oblt. Heinrich Setz, Kapitän of 4./JG 77, whose first two claims were made against British opponents, whereas Hackl claimed four victories in the West before coming to Russia as can be seen on photos 287 and 288 on page 272. Obviously on the occasion when these PK-photos were made, the Hungarian officers were shown around on the airfield with the aircraft of all the Gruppe's "Experten" being presented.

Work on Vol. 10 / I is progressing steadily; the publisher has voiced his opinion that it would be neccessary to limit the number of pages per volume to 500 at most which might lead to Vol 10 becoming a four-volume set. We'll see.

Regards

Jochen Prien
